Free youth coaches clinic set for Saturday
There are still some open spots in the free clinic for youth baseball coaches the Rays are offering Saturday morning at Tropicana Field.
Major-league coaches Tom Foley (third base), Jim Hickey (pitching) and Derek Shelton (hitting) plus minor league field coordinator Bill Evers will provide advice and instruction, along with Eckerd College coach Bill Mathews.
The clinic, called the “Learn How to Play the Rays Way” program, will consist of six stations consisting of a lecture and live demonstrations on techniques and drills. The Rays coaches will also conduct a question-and-answer session at the end of the program. There also will be reps from the St. Anthony's Sports Medicine porgram to provide tips and instructions on injury prevention.
The clinic is from 10 a.m.-noon, with parking in Lots 6 and 7 and entry through the Gate 1 rotunda. Registration is available on raysbaseball.com
